State Emergency Service
The Queensland State Emergency Service (QSES) is a not-for-profit that is supported through a shared partnership between the four essential stakeholders. These being the State Government and Local Governments (including the Local Government Association of Queensland (LGAQ) representative/s), the community and the QSES members themselves.
Both State and Local Governments work towards a common QSES goal with and for the benefit of the community.
The Queensland SES consists of thousands of 'unpaid' volunteers from a variety of backgrounds and professions who respond to emergencies and disasters across the State, 24/7.
They are trained and equipped to help their communities across a range of functions, and their primary purpose is to assist the most vulnerable members of the community.
The SES is designed to empower people to help themselves and others in their community in times of emergency and disaster. The basic concept is one of self-help and mutual assistance within each community.
